I immediately went through all of them (except the 1st, which I already watched and enjoyed).  The Too Close for Comfort one was lame, but I liked all of the others.  I thought BB was probably the best of them.

I just got around to this.  I agree that it was okay, but not great.  Kind of fell apart at the end.  A big part of thatw as putting so much of the weight on Patrick Wilson's shoulders, who I thougt was pretty terrible.  I didn't have much of a problem with anyone else, though.

I agree with PR that Wan seemed to drop the ball at some points (though I don't blame him for Wilson).

The movie us fairly mechanical, with some clearly mapped out startle moments, but a kind of ambling tension.  However, I have to give it credit for two clever ideas.

Spoiler for Hiden:
This is the first haunted house movie where the family did just what everyone tells them to do: get out of the house.  Still didn't go well for them (because it's not a haunted house movie (twist! [/Shyamalan mode]). Also, despite the ridiculous name of The FurtherTM, the idea of a lost astral projection walker's body being up for grabs is pretty clever, even if there was no other way to discover that information than the exposition psychic.

Side note about the light- that is the light he imagined.

Anyway, I already bought the sequel, but I don't know when or if I'll get around to it, since while I didn't hate it, I would say I was mildly disappointed.

Watching the previews for this and seeing that it's being dumped in February makes me wary of this movie being any good, sadly.
I wouldn't be surprised as it's a kids movie if they were just trying to capitalize on the lack of other real competition.

But kids are in school.  They won't make the same money they would when they're out.  And it should be a tentpole franchise film.  Statistically, if this was any good, it would come out in the summer.  February is traditionally a dumping ground for film.

News reports are that Marvel's Ant-Man is taking over the vacated Batman vs Superman spot on the July 2015 release slate.

I don't really know what to think anymore. My gut feeling is this second movie is looking like too many characters and too much setting up of other possible spinoffs (Wonder Woman, Justice League). In other words, it sounds like Iron Man 2, which made a crazy amount of money but is not exactly beloved.

If (as some script rumors suggest, but they could be bupkus) in fact the film has Batman holding Superman accountable for the death and destruction of the first film, I think that's an intriguing take on things. Though imho, pulling Batman out of Gotham City and having him mess around in Metropolis makes as much sense as, well, putting Superman in Gotham. Then again, if you're setting up for future films, and other franchises, you probably would want to "mash up" heroes and their environments like that to show a larger DC world where a Justice League would make sense.

Of course, this is a new, gloomy Superman, so he could fit in GC a little easier.

We get the magazine kids all the time.  Not aggressive at all, and they're actually nice and are trying to do something with their lives, so we always want to encourage them and wind up buying two or three subscriptions before remembering that there is no discount on these things.  We always wind up spending close to $100 bucks.  And they come all the time.

My wife mocked me the first time it happened.  She was the one who answered the second time, and wound up spending almost twice what I did!

Now it's easier just to pretend to not be home when the doorbell rings in the middle of the day.  It feels weird to be tiptoeing until they leave.  But it's easier than discouraging them.  And it's a lot easier than spending a ridiculous amount of money on magazines we don't even read when they come.

Also, this skill helped me dodge the recent visit from honest-to-God Jehovah's Witnesses.

I haven't powered on my PS4 in a number of days but I never experienced these reported issues (knock on wood) in all the time I've had the system. The weird thing is that the huge Sony support forum thread that is referenced in the article is from the European support page. I took a quick look at the U.S. support forum and there isn't anything close to that in comparison.

I definitely had issues with Battlefield 4 saves (which is the game in the picture of the article), but they seem to have been BF4 problems and not PS4 ones.

I was a little disappointed in this first episode.   Not sure why, entirely, maybe it just seemed to not actually go much of anywhere.  Some of it had to do with the lack of a satisfying explanation for the end of Series 2.  Still a disappointing Sherlock is still more satisfying than a lot of other shows.

One interesting bit of trivia:

Sherlock's parents were played by Cumberbatch's actual parents.

It comes back for one episode and then it's gone for another 3 weeks? I can see where that might work against building/keeping an audience.

The "origin of Skye" subplot was wearing out its welcome; I just didn't care. Now that we have her backstory I hope that the payoff is not equally long and drawn-out.

Not sure why but Ive noticed a number of shows are doing that this year.  Sleepy Hollow only has a few episodes left in its season and they'll be done. It seems like TV land has decided that there is no actual TV season any longer.  They just throw the shows at you when its convenient and hope you have a DVR I guess.

Yeah, I was surprised when Sleepy Hollow announced its 2 hour season finale after last week's episode.  The show is doing well, too (it was the first renewed for next year, IIRC).  It seems odd to me to leave it out of the public's mind for something what could be 9 or 10 months (Fox tends to kick its Fall season off late).

Maybe we're switching to a 3 season schedule now.  What used to be Fall, Mid and Summer could shift with shorter seasons that pop up more frequently.

The quote was about not just using a smartphone as a controller for Mario, but that they are absolutely talking about how to get into the smartphone world.

I imagine this will be more about Miiverse and integration and not just porting games or creating new ones (at least at first).  They have their pride, and I bet they will try to keep things in-house until the last possible moment.  But the investors may be feeling that the last possible moment has arrived.

Either way, they were not specifically talking about NOT moving him anywhere in that piece.

And then this happened:

Nintendo Chief: ‘We Failed’
Quote
Video game maker Nintendo is doing some soul searching after cutting forecasted sales of its new Wii U gaming system by almost 70 percent, forcing the company to radically reassess its strategy in a changing gaming industry.

The company’s president, Satoru Iwata, told reporters Friday there would be a “major management shake-up” at the company but that he would not resign, Reuters reports. He also promised the company is “thinking about a new business structure.”

“Given the expansion of smart devices, we are naturally studying how smart devices can be used to grow the game-player business,” Iwata said. “It’s not as simple as enabling Mario to move on a smartphone.

“We failed to reach our target for hardware sales during the year-end, when revenues are the highest,” he said.

Nintendo’s disappointing sales have pushed it to a third consecutive annual loss, Reuters reports. The company has steadfastly declined to allow its games—many including some of the biggest brand names in gaming, like Mario—to be played on competitive game systems or on the mobile devices to which gamers are increasingly turning.

As I said earlier, I knew the Wii U was not a success, but the numbers surprised me (I was expecting worse) and the fact that December was another uptick, but still lead to lowering sales expectations by 70% is amazing.

I mean, they're talking about Mario slipping onto smartphones.

If you want to compare apples to oranges, good for you. BC has meant the ability to play your old games on your new system. PS3Phat60GB did it, older PS3 emulated it, and 360 did too (select titles).

Wii *was* BC to GC.

Stuff you rebuy is a rerelease. It isn't compatibility, its programmed on the new platform. So opinion on that is pretty open/closed on that - BC is new being set up to use old, not reselling old on new.

Again, it's not programmed to the new platform.  Unless the platform you're referring to is PS Now. 

When PS3 ran PS2 games, they were souped up versions that had been mildly tweaked to run on the new platform.  This will not be that.

The reason those other systems were able to provide put-the-disc-in BC is that they had hardware that was compatible to the previous generation.  This was not possible in as straightforward a manner this go round (apparently). 

Microsoft literally insulted anyone who wanted BC.  Sony has made something potentially extraordinary happen.  It could be a fantastic, mutually beneficial thing that changes the way we're doing console gaming.  Or it could be a cash grab that fails because it's a cash grab.  But they're reaching out and making something happen despite everyone saying that it could not possibly happen for any of the new consoles this year.

To repeat, they couldn't do it physically.  A lot of people didn't care.  Some of us did.  Sony made it happen anyway using new technology that they paid a bundle for and have undoubtedly spent even more money refining and are going to be running servers for the service.  It shouldn't be a surprise that there may be a fee involved in making this happen.

Someone asked me a while back when I was ranting about the lack of BC this gen if I would be willing to pay for an add-on device to make it happen.  I said I would for sure, since I get that not everyone has an interest in it, and there is an expense to making it happen (either in the form of hardware or paying people to force compatibility) and that expense seems to not be worth it to MS or Sony for selling their systems.

It's not apples to oranges when the end result is exactly the same: those of us who want to play older games on our newer consoles will soon be able to so AND continue right where we left off.

I fail to see how Sony set things back when they offer a digital version day one with the disk release for pretty much every game on PS4.


Those game licenses are non-transferrable. Basically, Sony failed to innovate, and when their competition tried, they managed to score a fatal hit rather than letting MS stumble on their own.

Remember Sony's online strategy with the PS2? XBL was needed for them to step up. Then PSN+ came out with better discounts and the competitive nature flip flopped.

Their innovation seems to be with PS Now.  To answer one of your questions from a previous post, yes your save games (which are all automatically saved in the cloud) will work.  It's kind of the whole point.

Additionally, if the subscription service works the way it seems like it will, it is absolutely BC.  BC is being able to play the old games on the new system.  That's what PS Now is delivering.  You're just paying for the privilege.  As someone who finds BC important, but knowing that others couldn't care less, I'm okay with that.

So how do I get my Neir BD to transfer to play on a remote Bravia TV via PSNow? :?

BC means backwards compatibility, FWIW - not access to re-buy what I already have. The only way I could see that working is if I had to have the game in my PS3, hooked up to PSNow, which then allowed me to run the game off their own cloud version by verifying ownership over the Internet.

You're not rebuying what you already have.  You are paying a fee for the ability to play these games on the new system.  That fee, as we understand it, can be in the form of a subscription or a per-game charge. 

So, assuming Nier is one of the titles that gets into the PS Now lineup (which admittedly is a big assumption, but even the best BC systems in the past had holes in their compatibility), you would make sure your save is in the cloud (which would happen automatically if you set up your PS3 to do it) then either subscribe to the service or pay a fee then access PS Now (however that happens) and pick up your game from where you left off.  Magic.

Of course, what that fee will be is still up in the air and is reportedly part of the beta process that's starting soon.  The fee could be outrageous or it could be reasonable.  It might even be ridiculous when tied in with PS+.  Given Sony's recent trends and their clear desire to make PS Now A THINGTM, I suspect the latter will be the case, but time will tell.

"Frank Drebin, no relation" is a funny line, but not funny enough to overcome the distaste this whole project brings out.

The ZAZ style is incredibly hard to pull off.  Just ask the "producers" who "make" "films" like "Not Another Teen Movie" and the like.

I fail to see how Sony set things back when they offer a digital version day one with the disk release for pretty much every game on PS4.


Those game licenses are non-transferrable. Basically, Sony failed to innovate, and when their competition tried, they managed to score a fatal hit rather than letting MS stumble on their own.

Remember Sony's online strategy with the PS2? XBL was needed for them to step up. Then PSN+ came out with better discounts and the competitive nature flip flopped.

Their innovation seems to be with PS Now.  To answer one of your questions from a previous post, yes your save games (which are all automatically saved in the cloud) will work.  It's kind of the whole point.

Additionally, if the subscription service works the way it seems like it will, it is absolutely BC.  BC is being able to play the old games on the new system.  That's what PS Now is delivering.  You're just paying for the privilege.  As someone who finds BC important, but knowing that others couldn't care less, I'm okay with that.
